Summary
"When confronted by horrendous evil, even the most pious believer may question not only life's worth but also God's power and goodness. A distinguished philosopher and a practicing minister, Marilyn McCord Adams has written a highly original work on a fundamental dilemma of Christian thought - how to reconcile faith in God with the evils that afflict human beings." "If redirected, philosophical reflection on evil can, Adams's book demonstrates, provide a valuable approach not only to theories of God and evil but also to pastoral care. Drawing on the resources of Biblical religion, her work invites thoughtful readers to reconsider their notions of this eternal question and demonstrates how horrendous evils can indeed be defeated by the goodness of God."--Jacket
